How to use and upgrade Auto Farms.
Auto Farms can be bought in the
/shop. Farms are fully automatic, do not require a water source, and will replant/replace/pick up any crops/ores in its radius.
You can only have 5 auto farms of any type placed at a time.
Auto farms require the chunk to be loaded to function! And no, there is no artificial way to have a chunk loaded. That would be too overpowered :)
Setting up Auto Farms
To set up auto farms, simply place valid blocks around the auto farm. Refer to the screenshot above for help.
Valid Crop Farm Blocks:
- Melon Stem
- Pumpkin Stem
- Sweet Berry Bush
- Nether Wart
- Sugar Cane
Valid Ore Farm Blocks:
- Iron/Deepslate Iron Ore
- Copper/Deepslate Copper Ore
- Gold/Deepslate Gold Ore
- Nether Gold Ore
- Nether Quartz Ore
- Lapis/Deepslate Lapis Ore
- Redstone/Deepslate Redstone Ore
To clarify again: Diamond, Emerald, and Coal ores cannot be collected by ore farms. It would be too overpowered :)
